Could spend hours in the museum. Exhibits very well done - informative, interesting, and inspiring. Beautiful art, but particularly enjoyed exhibits depicting history of Alaska.

An excellent museum. History of the Eskimo culture was fascinating. Galleries had good artwork and interesting exhibits. Restaurant in the centre was perfect for our needs.

We spent about 4 hours here and you could certainly spend more. The Smithsonian exhibit and the Anchorage history is extremely intriguing. Each of the Alaska native displays is so interesting and displayed in a manner easily seen with ease of reading. Imaginarium is not for kids of all ages!

We spent a day at this museum in February 2014. It was pretty good but it was all self-guided. I would have appreciated a docent or an app/audio tour to help make some of the exhibits more exciting, or to draw your attention to more interesting tidbits. (Apparently there is an audio tour -- see below -- but the museum staff didn't know about it.)

I really enjoyed the dioramas built to represent each native group. There is a cool, interactive science room too that we enjoyed.

You can apparently get an audio tour of this museum here: http://www.alaska.org/guide/anchorage-museum-audio-guide

We visited the Ramusen Center/Anchorage Museum located in downtown a few feet away from the Anchorage mall and thoroughly enjoyed the Alaskan history gallery, SmithSonian Arctic gallery and the Art of the North galleries. The Planetorium shows and times are limited during the weekdays hence, check with them beforehand. The only disappointment was we couldn't get anything to eat there.The restuarant at the Museum closed earlier on a weekday than the suggested time (closed earlier to 4 pm though it was mentioned that it is open until 4 pm) and there were no vegeterian sandwich options at the other cafe located in Museum. We were thankful that we carried snacks in our backpacks to munch on while taking a break from strolling through some of the long galleries. It will cost around $20 from airport to Downtown/museum/mall in a cab.
